Today marks 4 years since I have had a drink or drug. My sobriety is the inspiration behind this blog; I stay sober one day at a time, and this blog is “365 consecutive days of music, 1 song at a time”. I don’t talk about it that often here, but recent events have proven to me that being open about my experience, strength, and hope can help someone open up to me about the help they need. The reasons I’ve gone through all of the extremely challenging times was not only to prove to myself how strong I am and what I am actually capable of, but to also be there for a fellow brother or sister struggling on this journey. This is where my life really gets full and my higher purpose is revealed. I am so grateful for every experience, every person who has helped me through them, and all of the people who have allowed me to help them. I am actively living a beautiful, peaceful, and purposeful life.
